Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream is definitely one of my favorite traditional ice cream flavors.  It is incredibly easy to make and much better than anything you find at the grocery store.  You are in complete control of the cookie to ice cream ratio, so there will never be the feeling of disappointment that comes with opening that store bought ice cream container and finding that it looks more like plain vanilla than cookies ‘n cream.  With this recipe you will have plenty of cookies in every single spoonful; 1:1 is the perfect ratio in my opinion.

White Chocolate Nutter Butter Ice Cream

Each year at Christmas my mother-in-law covers nutter butter cookies in white chocolate for a delicious holiday treat and that is the inspiration behind this white chocolate nutter butter ice cream.  The combination of the super sweet white chocolate and the slightly salty peanut butter cookies is divine.  I also added a liquor called rum chata to the ice cream.  This tastes like an oatmeal cookie that has been dipped in milk and pairs perfectly with other flavors.

German Chocolate Cake Ice Cream

April 9th was the 10 year anniversary of the first date that this unicorn had with her husband who adores german chocolate cake.  So I had to make a german chocolate cake ice cream flavor to celebrate the last 10 years together.  The dark chocolate ice cream and the moist chunks of cake are not overly sweet, allowing for the richness of the coconut pecan mixture to really stand out.  I look forward to the next 10 years with Mike and enjoying these decadent ice cream creations with him!  I don’t think he minds being the taste tester for each recipe either.

Blackberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

My favorite texture for cheesecake is light and fluffy as opposed to dense and heavy, so that is exactly what I aimed to accomplish with this blackberry cheesecake ice cream.  And the great thing about this recipe is that the cheesecake does not need to be baked!   I am partial to ice cream that has chocolate, peanut butter or any combination of those and this flavor definitely satisfies that rich craving.  At the same time, it tastes light as well with the fresh blackberries and swirls of light and fluffy cheesecake.
